This past December 6th, Patricia Ann McNair graced our podium to bring us this "Deer Story" from her new collection The Temple of Air, and it went a little like this...

This past December 6th, Hanna Martine dropped by our microphone to bring us a bit of Blue's Clues–inspired erotica. No, really, we're serious. Because you never know what's going to happen "In the Doghouse"...

This past December 6th, Electric Velocipede mastermind and Hugo Award winner John Klima made the dangerous trek south from the Waukesha Public Library to read his short story "Life's Simple Pleasures" for us. Attend, children...

This past December 6th, Emile Ferris kicked off Tuesday Funk in a big way with her poem "My Mother Is 1968 Chicago." We wish technical difficulties didn't prevent us from showing you the full work, but check out this powerful, powerful excerpt from it:

Video: The front, Paris edition

            

Chicago may be enjoying a brief respite from the bitter cold this week, but somehow we here at Tuesday Funk still seem to want to escape to Paris. We recently shared video of Suzanne Clores's adventures in the modern-day City of Light; now we're pleased to let Holly McDowell carry you away to the Paris of the 1830s in this long-lost segment from our June 21st reading...

And if you want to accompany us through time and space for more great adventures like this one, be sure to join us on Tuesday, January 3rd, when we present Stephen Markley, Lawrence Santoro, Christopher Sweet, and more!

December debriefing

            

Gale force It was a gale-force wind that struck Hopleaf this past Tuesday night. At least, that's what I gather from the way audience members kept telling us they were blown away. We never know quite how any given evening is going to go, but we're happy to report that this latest Tuesday Funk maintained the high quality we've come to expect over the past year. At least in this co-host's humble opinion. If you weren't there, let us tell you a little about what you missed.

Things started strong right out of the gate as Emile Ferris blew us away with a fierce primal scream of a poem. John Klima maintained the buzz as he led us on a trippy journey through three related dreams. And to round out the first half of the show, Hanna Martine raised temperatures with a teaser from her extraordinary paranormal erotica.

After a break for beer and a poem about Bill's trench coat (see below) came a high school reunion of sorts. After a powerful excerpt from Patricia Ann McNair's acclaimed new story collection, her former classmate Jody Lynn Nye led us on a funny and thrilling romp through the dark terrain of lycanthropy.

The fact that Patty and Jody go back so far was a synchronicity we didn't discover until after we'd scheduled them on the same bill, which is only one of the many great synchronicities that emerge from any given evening at Tuesday Funk.

But don't worry if you weren't there! We'll be posting video of everyone's performances over the coming days and weeks, so watch this space. And of course Tuesday Funk will continue bringing great readers together throughout 2012, starting January 3rd with strong work from Stephen Markley, Lawrence Santoro, Christopher Sweet, and more, plus another probable Poem By Bill.  Mark your calendar now, because the new year won't properly begin until you've been Funk'd.

            

With only four more days until our December 6th reading, we want to remind you how Tuesday Funk can transport you out of a cold and dreary Chicago winter to magical places like a summer in Paris. In this segment from our November 1st program, Suzanne Clores reminds us that the best-laid plan is sometimes no plan at all...

And if you want to tag along on more great adventures like this one, be sure to join us on Tuesday, December 6th, when we present Jody Lynn Nye, John Klima, Hanna Martine, Patricia Ann McNair, and Emile Ferris!

            

Thanksgiving is a short six days away, and Tuesday Funk reader Laura Stark is here to give you one more thing to feel thankful for. In this segment from our November 1st program, she gives us reason to look forward to family gatherings that can't possibly be as awkward as this one...

And if you want to feast on more great readings like this one, be sure to join us on Tuesday, December 6th, when we present the stellar lineup of Jody Lynn Nye, John Klima, Hanna Martine, Patricia Ann McNair, and Emile Ferris!

            

For your Monday edification, we dip back to our recent November 1st event at Hopleaf. The reading shared a date with Dia de los Muertos, and author Cesar Torres shared with us the transcript of a particular video blog he ran across on YouTube. A rather morbid video blog, that is...

And if you're dying for more great readings like this one, be sure to join us on Tuesday, December 6th, when we present the stellar lineup of Jody Lynn Nye, John Klima, Hanna Martine, Patricia Ann McNair, and Emile Ferris!

            

If you're trying to figure out what to do for lunch on this fine Friday, Tuesday Funk is here to help! This past Tuesday night, Matt Wood whetted our appetites with his instructions on how to order the corned beef at Manny's Cafeteria & Delicatessen. In case you've always wanted to but were intimidated by the mustaches, let Matt tell you how to do it:
